ID help for new collector - Cristiano duck
« on: April 24, 2021, 11:34:47 PM »
Hi team

I very excitedly bought 2 pieces of glass from a collectibles market this weekend.
My favourite animals are ducks and birds and this was the only glass duck at the whole market.
I canít find anything with Cristiano as a glass name, and am thinking itís a souvenir or copy type ornament perhaps (like an imitation Murano)?
It stands about 12cm tall and has a purple / cranberry coloured swirl through it.
There are no signatures, marks, other features.
The label looks like it might have been blue in a past life and has faded to silver.
Any help gratefully accepted. Iím just a brand new baby first time collector and am very keen to learn. Even if Iíve been sold a whoopsies then that would be great.(This might be my whoopsies item this time but I still love it because itís a duck so I wonít take any bad news to heart!).
